On March 15, guests for Seminar on International Cooperation Projects Projects under the "Belt and Road" Initiative also conducted a field survey on the construction and development of Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone (China base of Zhengzhou-Luxembourg "silk road in the air"), China Railway Express (Zhengzhou) and export-oriented industrial clusters.

When guests arrived at Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport, a newly arrived Cargolux Airlines International cargo airplane was busy unloading with the engine roaring on the apron. Wieger Ketellapper, Vice President of Cargolux Airlines International, said the cargo plane would unload 110 t cargos here, load another 120 t to Japan, and then fly from Japan to Chicago in the United States, where it would load another 50 t and return to Luxembourg.

Mr. Ketellapper had been a pilot and a captain and had flown the cargo plane. He said that CGO’s two runways could meet the need of Cargolux Airlines International cargo airplanes, especially under full load, and that CGO was building the third runway. From the perspective of a pilot, he said that CGO’s runways and operation were the most suitable for Cargolux Airlines International both professionally and commercially. He spoke highly of the efficiency of Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport, and specially stressed to the guests that "it only takes two hours for the cargo plane under full load to finish unloading”.

The visiting guests from home and abroad communicated with Mr. Catterapper from time to time and asked about the maximum cargo capacity of the cargo aircraft and the categories of imports and exports. Many foreign guests took photos and selfies on the spot. With great interest, they said that they were shocked after the visit and were very optimistic about the future of "Belt and Road".
